Which 7950 to choose?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello, I'm buying 7950 in a few days. Could someone tell me, which model should I choose that costs under 1000 Lt? I'm going to OC my card. Thanks for advice.

I would go with Msi or the Sapphire Vapor-x, both have very good cooling and nice for overclocking.. idk how much more it is in that currency but here you can see they are only about 900 kaina more(msi boost one):

Sapphire Vapor-X

Msi 7950

Msi 7950 Boost

If I had to choose between the 3, I would go with the msi without the boost for 992,00 Kaina and overclock it myself.

Someone said, that this card will have unlocked voltage. Is that true?

the main difference is the card you have chosen (model no. 11196-17-40G) has VRM temp sensors. custom HD 7950 PCB measures 29 cm long. also the flex cards supports triple monitor without need for using displayport or minidisplayport.

the other card mentioned in the 2nd post (model no. 11196-19-20G) does not have VRM temp sensors. custom HD 7950 PCB measures 27 cm long. here is that card pics

both cards support unlocked voltage. if you can fit the card which you picked in your case go for it. thumb.gif

The one I linked to is cheaper, the voltage isn't locked and its the one I have. I am running on stock voltage at 1100/1500.

Couldn't find details of your case but you can take measurements yourself with a scale and then compare to the size of the card.
